We have always gone to the Driftwood location and I was wondering if the Round Rock location was as good?
Ate there before Christmas. Food was great, no difference from the original. The ambiance was not as cool, though. The serve beer and wine alos.
Just found out you can't buy a single beer at the Driftwood location. You have to buy a 6 pack! I would think they are losing out on revenue. If you are the only one in the group who wants a beer - well they just lost a sale. This last trip, April 27 would cause us to say it has become overrated.
When did they start selling beer?
I didn't think the location in Driftwood sold any beer or other alcohol. That wasn't by the choice of the Salt Lick, but because they are located in a dry part of Hays County.
I did some online searching and it seems that the Salt Lick Cellars (their new-ish wine cellar/vineyard) does sell beer in addition to wine. I wonder if the alcohol regulations for the precinct changed since my last visit to the Salt Lick's Driftwood location about a year ago, or if the Salt Lick Cellar selling beer in a 6-back is classified differently than a restaurant serving beer.
The Salt Lick web site still says BYOB.
I wouldn't doubt that there is some state or local liquor law that distinguishes between 6-pack sales as being a convenience store sale and individual sales at a bar/restaurant. The licenses would be different.
Salt Lick in Driftwood is unable to serve alcoholic beverages. One can purchase one can bring one's own. (Connivence stores sell single bottles and multi-packs.)
The Salt Lick in Round Rock is able to serve beer and wine.
That's what I thought, until the poster above mentioned buying six-packs of beer at the Driftwood location. It got me confused.
Liz B is correct.
The Driftwood location does indeed sell alcohol. They also accept credit cards. Their web page is dated. This was in March 2012.
You can still BYOB.
